August 17, 2013 – Late Prophet T.O Obadare’s Burial Ground Is A Miracle Ground & Healing Centre In Ilesha, Osun State – Family
According to a projection by Osun State Governor Rauf Aregbesola who approved a total sum of N35 million for the burial of late WOSEM Prophet T.O Obadare, the grave yard of the deceased man of God is set to become a miracle ground.
Obadare’s first son
Pastor Paul Obadare, the first son of the popular evangelist assured the public that his dad’s burial ground will become a healing center for the sick and the oppressed.
He further said the mausoleum built by Osun’s Government in memory of his late father would perform miraculous signs and wonders as he did when he was alive.
“We are sure that papa’s grave will heal the sick and many oppressed people will receive deliverance and breakthrough for having an encounter with his grave. So, it is important to preserve such grave and that is why we appreciate the state government for deeming it fit to construct a mausoleum in his honour. The place can also be used for prayer and other spiritual activities by those who believe in the ministry of our dear Father.” – said Pastor Paul Obadare
Before his death, Prophet Obadare gave his first son, Paul a specific instruction on how and where he should be buried. He told him wherever he died, his corpse should be buried in his hometown in Ilesha, Osun State.
Hear Pastor Paul as he narrates what his father told him before breathing his last breath:
“I was privileged to have an interaction with Papa before he died. I moved close to him and he told me so many things as if he had known that he would die. One of the things he told me was that we should ensure that we bring him back to Ilesa whenever he dies and his remains should be buried inside his church in Ilesa, his home town.
“Papa told me that I should tell the family that he insisted that his body be brought to Ilesa whenever he goes to be with his Lord and saviour. He maintained that he would want to be buried in Ilesa and that is why we have all agreed that he should be brought to Ilesa, even though he spent better part of his life and ministry in Akure, Ondo state, where we have headquarters of the church. Today papa was not just an indigene of a particular place but an international man with reputable achievements spread across various areas of human endeavours.”
“The late Apostle Obadare was a fervent man of God, and there was no dull moment with him. Every time you had with him was always very interesting and exciting. He will be greatly missed by those who knew him, especially those of us who are his biological children and several other spiritual children in various parts of the world.”
“He was a soul that represented so many things to us as a family and even he represented so many things to the body of Christ on earth. The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) would miss papa, so also many individuals and organizations would miss him.”
Obadare’s burial will take place today in Ilesha Osun state.
One of his favourite quotes that can never leave my memory is:
“Ogo ni fun Olorun ni oke orun; mo tun wi leekan si pe, ogo ni fun Olodumare.”
May his soul rest in eternal peace.
